66,000-square-foot dedicated maintenance hangar

Sitting on 7.6 acres, the 152,000-square-foot complex features a 66,000-square-foot dedicated maintenance hangar accommodating as many as 15 large-cabin aircraft. There is also 86,000 square feet of office and shop space. Our new maintenance facility employs 70 technicians, avionics experts, interior craftsmen and support specialists, including A&P technicians, IA-qualified inspectors and an onsite FAA Designated Airworthiness Representative. With three-daily shifts, they can meet any maintenance, parts, avionics or interior needs. Co-located in the facility is the Dassault Falcon OEM mobile response team and Seat Air Systems aircraft upholstery company.

The $3.4 million onsite parts inventory includes 6,000 line items and 55,000 parts for shipping worldwide. Also onsite is a full-service interior shop where highly skilled craftsmen perform complete cabin design, reconfiguration and refurbishing, lighting conversions, and cabinetry construction and refinishing. The facility is an authorized Gulfstream supplier, and an authorized dealer for Gogo, SmartSky and Honeywell high-speed internet solutions, and Honeywell, Rockwell-Collins, and Garmin avionics warranty programs.
